Bierke is very happy to be able to release a new publication of Aleana Egan, produced and edited by Melissa Canbaz and the Künstlerhaus Bremen. Covering the exhibition at the Künstlerhaus, this publication also connects the poster contributions in very special way. Having printed these contributions by Michaela Chiriac, Sofia Duchovny, Hella Gerlach, Manuela Leinhoß, Vera Palme, Kirsten Pieroth and Nora Schultz on removable static stickers allows the reader to create various new connections and dialogues between the different artworks and spacial settings.
